I've been a pretty diehard Android (mainly Nexus/Pixel) fan since 2010 with short stints with previous iPhones. However, the redesign of the iPhone X had me intrigued as well as coming to the realization that a lot of the apps I use to communicate and work with my business clients simply perform much better on IOS than they do on Android. Because of this, I decided to purchase an iPhone X to test for a month or two before potentially making the switch permanently. Overall, I'm happy with the phone, minus my inability to snap good quality pictures with it. No matter what I do, the pictures turn out terrible with this phone, when compared to my Pixel 2 XL. The iPhone X pics always come out either too saturated, too grainy, or simply can't focus on the correct aspect of the photo, even if I try to manually set the focus. ...I just don't get it. Sadly, so far the iPhone X has provided sub-par pictures to represent memories that my Pixel would have otherwise gotten just right. I'm not here to bash the iPhone X camera, per se. I am simply looking for input from others on some potential settings I could change to fix the image quality to be at least close to what the Pixel 2 provides when just quickly snapping a photo. I'm not one to spend time editing photos after the fact so if that's the solution then my time with the iPhone might be shorter lived than I would have hoped. For some context, I just took some back to back photos to provide an example. This was literally just "point and shoot" to represent the typical way I'd snap a picture in the moment. iPhone X Pixel 2 XL iPhone X Pixel 2 XL And another crappy one from the iPhone X I don't think anyone could argue that the image quality from the iPhone outperformed the Pixel in this case. It makes the edges of the dog bed look red, when in real life they are grey/tan (as properly colored in the Pixel 2 XL pics). It also removed a ton of detail from her fur where the Pixel was able to properly capture that detail. Unfortunately, this is a proper representation of the pictures I've been taking with the iPhone X over the last week I've had it. ...and here's another I took of my brother-in-law and my nephew. This picture doesn't remotely represent the true color and detail of that moment. It made the red pillow WAY more punch-y than it is in real life, it soften/blurred the skin tone and removed a ton of detail from both of their faces, as well as my brother's arm. And the space between the pillows and the wall just look super grainy. In the end, I'm looking for input on settings I may be able to change to correct this poor image quality. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
